    It's right for you if...

    You're new to the trail and you’re looking for a real mountain bike that doubles as a commuter—and you want it all at an exceptional value.

    The tech you get

    A lightweight aluminum frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look, 2x8 drivetrain, a wide range of gearing so you always have the right gear for your terrain, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and a terrain-smoothing suspension fork with a lockout.

    The final word

    Marlin 5 is a great ride for all your adventures. But it's also versatile, and Marlin 5 is a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorize and haul a load.

    Why you'll love it

    1. It's a real mountain bike that's also perfectly suited to daily commutes, rides around campus, or just getting from A to B on any surface
    2. Smaller frame sizes (XXS, XS, and S) have short-reach brake levers that make it easier and more comfortable for riders with smaller hands to brake confidently
    3. Marlin models in XXS through S frame sizes have a curved top tube and a lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount
    4. Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorize, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
    5. Like every model in the Marlin family, it's backed by Trek's lifetime warranty
